En-Gedi Children’s Home June 2024 Newsletter

Receive warm greetings our dear friends and partners in ministry. Our caring and loving God has been with us, protecting us and providing for our needs. Our last newsletter was in March just before the heavy rains, flooding and the devastation that it caused. I am grateful to God because He kept us all safe even as many people and property perished in the floods. With washed away gravel roads, we
had several days we could not drive in or out of En-Gedi. Thankfully, we keep enough supplies for a few weeks and we could also walk back & forth from where vehicles could reach. All this time, our very delicate children and the caregivers remained super healthy. Our God is indeed faithful and always close to us. Thank you for your prayers and your messages checking on us.

Our plans are to continue to rescue severely disabled children and give them a home full of love and care. Staying with these children has enlightened us about challenges parents, especially mothers, go through in communities filled with stigma and retrogressive beliefs related to disabilities in children. We have plans to expand the “kids” building and put up a Wing B where we will transfer the older children, especially those able to decipher something. When I answer to the call to help a child, I usually bring them to the hospital for assessment, and often, I am often told that they won’t live long, but, the breath of God belongs to Him alone and only Him who knows how long each of the kids will live. Our children are living far beyond the Doctor’s prescribed lifespan and there is now need for another living room. Soon,we will embark on that project.

I appreciate each one of you for being partners with me. I thank God that when He talks to us, we hear his voice and we work together for His glory. May God richly bless you all and may He keep us connected in serving Him while we have the opportunity.

Please pray with us for continued good health of all our children and staff; pray that En-Gedi continues to be an inspiration to many as they witness God’s love and care for children with very special needs.

Thank God for giving us a very supportive
family, both locally and internationally.

I love you all,
Margaret Njuguna Founder/Director
